Safeguarding

If staff members or visitors have concerns about a child they should raise these with the Designate Safeguarding Officers. This includes vulnerability to radicalisation as well as situations of abuse which may involve staff members.

If the Headteacher is absent, then all concerns should be raised with the Designated Safeguarding Officers.

Any allegation relating to the Headteacher, please see the Chair of Governors.

However, if at any point there is a risk of serious harm to a child, a referral should be made to Social Care Direct immediately on Tel: 03458 503 503

 

Trust your senses. If something doesn’t feel right or you have a concern don’t ignore it – report it. Call 03458 503 503. Remember, for immediate risk always contact the Police.
